good luck on the novel thing and on your exams. You'll do fine at both. But let me know your secret on one month writing times.

mtt ~ http://www.nanowrimo.org/ <-- november is the national (huh?) novel writing month. Check out that site, meant to recommend it to you specidficallay. It deals with a novella more than a novel, a word minimum limit of 50,000. I cna manage that, I do it already. :)
leon ~ Oh come on, just jump in and try writing it. No clue what my theme will be, all I know is... I'll write it. Meanwhile, I wait for inspiration. :)
chloe ~ Thankie!
s ~ wouldn't you buy the book if it went on the market??

When we are out of time...we usually do the most irrelevant thing that comes to our mind...distraction is directly proportional to concentration, and also increases exponentially as you want to concentrate more...:)...Hope you are not writing the novel during your exam...:)

s ~ :D

navin ~ that would be a wee bit hard to manage. Besides, considering they won't let me take a sheet out, no point.

It's a well known fact that you never suffer from writers' block(of the non academic kind) during exams.That the case,the novel writing should be great...nice blog,btw

why have you still signed up :-?

well I guess you have 'coz u can do them both!!!!

I've always felt (proved not that rigourously :P) that IT IS always up in the head. We have all the time in the world for everything- its just about willpower and some good time-management skills!

Good luck camphor for ur exams! I'll be back after mine (on 24th).

How did the novel go? I hope it didn't end with the "she" it started with. :P

Jokes apart, I hope the exams are treating you well. *g*

rads, vanathi ~ Thanks!

ashish ~ lol, I'd have done both too, if my poor computer hadn't crashed on me. :(

zydar ~ it hit 32000 words. And no way am I going to get the other 18000 in the next two days, so it's a dead case. :( Maybe the year after next...

the monk ~ buddy, been there, seen that, like it. :)
